The Office of Early Childhood recognizes parents and families as valuable resources in each child’s education. Parents are encouraged to be active in the educational process. They are invited to be involved in classroom activities and to conference with staff periodically and as needed. Communication is established by utilizing classroom notebooks, newsletters, phone contacts, and personal conversations. Regularly scheduled parent meetings are provided by staff and are intended to meet the needs of the families and students enrolled.
There are many opportunities for parents to be involved in the program. Parents are encouraged to join the Early Childhood Advisory Council and attend the parent workshops throughout the year.
